Over the past nearly 11 years I’ve been blogging, one of my favorite parts of blogging has been the people I’ve met. Many have come and “gone” from the blogging world, but there are a few of us who have stuck around and still do this thing for a living. And one of the things that’s even cooler is getting to watch your blogging friends take on bigger and bolder endeavors and getting to cheer them on along the way.
One of my blogging friends (turned IRL friends) Jill Krause, founder of creator of Baby Rabies and Happy Loud Life, is checking a BIG THING off a blogger’s bucket list – she wrote a book! (Jill and I met in 2014 when we were both on the #StitchFixVacay. She is as real as they come and is just amazing. I adore Jill.)
The book is called “50 Things to Do Before You Deliver” and there are a couple things you should know:
Now, let’s talk about the book.
Jill Krause is such a talented writer, she has four kiddos so she’s basically at expert-level parenting now, and she also has zero filter. There are so many “parenting prep” books out there and 99% of them are filled with junk or information that is not actually helpful. Jill’s book is the exact opposite of those books. This book is CHOCK FULL of actually useful information for mamas and parents-to-be. It has ideas and things to do during each trimester – conversations you should have with your spouse / partner, questions you might want to ask your doctor, how to “plan” for the future, etc.
The combination of Jill’s passion for motherhood, her sense of humor, her wit, her ability to lay it all out there, and the advice she gathered from other mamas that she had contribute to the book make this an absolute MUST HAVE book. I’m not kidding.
Jill, friend, I’m so proud of you! You are the BEST.
